  • [01] Those responsible for miners' actions under investigation

    Romanian Interior Minister Constantin Dudu Ionescu has ordered an inquiry to establish the individual responsibilities of the commanders who ran the Interior Ministry (MI) operations in Bumbesti and Costesti two weeks ago. The results of the inquiry will be submitted to the Romanian Government and the Country's Supreme Council for Defence (CSAT) by February 11. RADOR

    [02] Senator Gyorgy Frunda's initiative to the CE's Parliamentary Assembly should be discussed in parliament, the PUNR MP groups request

    The MP groups representing the Romanians' National Unity Party (PUNR) called for a debate in parliament over Senator Gyorgy Frunda's recent initiative to the Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly. The PUNR MPs even believe that Senator Frunda should be removed from his job as Romanian delegate to the CE. The proposal of a resolution to set up an ad hoc commission on national minorities' rights is an abuse against the parliamentary deonthology and, as the PUNR representatives put it, Mr Frunda's initiative is deeply immoral and inconcevable for a Romanian MP mandate. The PUNR MP groups believe that, once again, Senator Frunda did nothing but tried to call for the resumption of the CE's monitoring of Romania concerning the Romanian Hungarian minority rights.

    [03] BNS-PRM meetings

    In preparation of an official meeting between the National Trade Union Block (BNS) and Greater Romania Party (PRM) leaders, two informal meetings between the two sides were reported on Tuesday following a PRM initiative. PRM leader Corneli Vadim Tudor claimed recently that one of the BNS leaders got a 4 billion lei bribe for participating in the privatisation of the Dacia Felix Bank. The BNS said it was breaking any relation with the PRM until the name of the leader and the evidence in support of the allegation were made public. If not, the BNS is expecting the PRM and its leader to officially apologise for their lies about the BNS. RADOR

    [04] PDSR's opinion on draft budget

    The vicepresident of the Party of Social Democracy in Romania (PDSR), Ioan Mircea Pascu, believes that the existing draft budget is a reflection of the country's "bad administration" and the main source of growing social unrest. He said the draft budget was an "instrument against the reform". The PDSR leader believes that the recent tensions and developments in the Jiu Valley were a proof of how bad the crisis has been administrated. RADOR

    [05] Trade union leaders of CNSRL Fratia met senators of the PNL MP group

    The leaders of the CNSRL Fratia (The Brotherhood) trade union have presented the senators of the National Liberal Party (PNL) wwith the demands put forward by the trade union confederation they represented. The two sides have admitted that Romania had no other chance than promoting a law designed to allow a series of programmes aimed at developing the macroeconomy and its departments. The schedule of trade union actions includes a Japanese strike on February 15, a warning strike on February 17 and the general strike on February 22, and this schedule is to be abserved. The trade unionists would like the ministries to express their position on the demands they were presented with as it was not the strike for strike's sake but a solution to their problems that the workers were seeking.
